Slipstensbäcken Hemavan

Show map

The brook in the middle of the village, known as Slipstensbäcken or Kvarnbäcken (= the grindstone brook or the mill brook) has been used for driving the village’s grindstones and a mill for grinding corn.

 

There is a collection of water-powered grindstones 100 metres above the petrol station in Hemavan. To have newly-sharpened scythes was important for haymaking in the boggy flood-meadows of the Umeälven river. Much hay was needed for cattle and horses during the long winter.
